When I was in some physics -lesson, probably something to do with Quantum Physics -- the teacher said that certain Maxwell equations would change if the Higg's boson is found. It is also possible that I have mixed something, he may have meant magnetic monotones. Anyway does there exist any change to Maxwell equations after the Higg's boson?

Nothing will change with Maxwell's equations due to the discovery of the Higgs bosons. Maxwell's equations describe the continuum of electromagnetic theory and know nothing about particle physics.

Simple and direct, I like it :-) – David Z Sep 2 '12 at 20:07
